Virginia Electric & Power Co.; Availability of Scoping Document

October 25, 1994.
    In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 
and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission's) 
regulations, 18 CFR Part 380 (Order 486, 52 FR 47897, December 17, 
1987), the Office of Hydropower Licensing has undertaken preparation of 
an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the application for Non-
project Use of Project Lands and Waters at the Gaston and Roanoke 
Rapids Project (FERC No. 2009), located on the Roanoke River. The 
proposed water intake and pipeline would be located in Brunswick, 
Greenville, Sussex, Southhampton and Isle of Wight Counties, Virginia.
    On July 1, 1994, the Commission issued a Notice of Intent to 
Prepare an EIS and to conduct Scoping Meetings. Public scoping meetings 
were held at the following dates and locations:
     July 14, 1994, Scoping Meeting held in Raleigh, NC.
     July 18, 1994, Scoping Meeting held in South Hill, VA.
     July 20, 1994, Scoping Meeting held in Virginia Beach, VA.
    The period for providing written comments on scoping closed on 
August 19, 1994. Comments on scoping were received from federal, state, 
and local government entities, private organizations, and individuals. 
At this time, the process of reviewing and analyzing comments received 
during scoping is complete.
    As part of the process of scoping the EIS, the Office of Hydropower 
Licensing has produced a Scoping Document Two (SD2). The SD2 summarizes 
the following elements: the scoping process, scoping comments received 
during public meetings, and scoping comments received from written 
testimony. Further, the SD2 provides a general overview of issues that 
will be evaluated in the EIS as well as issues that do not warrant 
further evaluation. The SD2 also includes a schedule for issuing the 
draft EIS and final EIS.
    Copies of the SD2 are available for review in the Public Reference 
Branch, Room 3104, of the Commission's offices at 941 North Capitol 
Street, N.E., Washington, DC 20426.
